A long but important account of what it's like to be gay at a Christian university. The author is very open and honest about the types of people he encountered and even admits to a kind of homophobiaphobia. I think this might be useful to liberals who have no real experience with how christians actually act in community together yet have all sorts of preconceived notions and judgements. But, then this is just one guy's experience in one place.
I do like that he seems to be on the same wavelength of what tolerance is as I am.
But, really the better parts are his accounts of his relationships with professors especially his old theology professor. You'll just have to read it.Not tolerating someone for his narrow-mindedness is perhaps the epitome of intolerance. I learned from my time at Liberty that this bigotry happens on both sides: not only were there some Christians who wanted to stone some gays, but there were even some gays who wanted to stone a few Christians. Just the other day, I saw a man driving a car with two bumper stickers. One was a rainbow. The other showed a picture of a lion, and contained the caption "The Romans had it right." Just another open-minded gay man, I suppose.
*I don't really want this to be a thread that just repeats past arguments over homosexuality and marriage. If we can mostly avoid that we can see where it goes.
